If Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were only an appetizer to fill your hunger for comedy and political debate in Washington DC this past weekend, Exit Clov is the soda pop to quench your thirst for the 21st century kids resistance. Blending the essential ingredients of electro pop and grunge like a best of the 90′s super combo, DC’s Exit Clov has one trait you’ll be hard pressed to ignore… FUN!
We first discovered Exit Clov as a recommendation from DeVotchka’s management and have kept an eye on the band ever since. Their single, “District Menagerie” beautifully combines electronic drums with twin female vocal harmonies over a simplistic piano melody. Alternatively, their music video for “MK Ultra” has more of an old-school punk feel with a touch of Atari filling in the gaps.
For those of us lucky enough to be in NYC this week, the band is playing a FREE show at Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 2) this Friday, November 5th, so be sure to swing by for one of their rare live performances!
